Answer 11.
Honourable dignitaries on the dais, respect­ed teachers, and my dear friends, “The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.” Govt. HSS, Kallada gave its ears to these words of Chanakya, and the result we are reaping now. Nalla padam, the Lessons of goodness, a farsighted and innovative initiative of Malayala Manorama, paved the way for spread­ing the light of goodness around. Standing here, as a representative of the school, wear­ing the crown of recognition for teaching the society, the lessons of goodness, I feel extremely proud and honoured. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the Malayala Manorama officials concerned, and all the generous teachers of our school ‘ who took efforts to teach us the lessons of good and helped us look at others and their needs. Govt. HSS, Kallada, is special for all of its students, for not making us bookworms but good citizens. The lessons of goodness, that it teaches its students as well as the society, are appreciable.

When ‘Snehaveedu’, one of our Nallapadam initiatives, provided shel­ter for three families, it was the expression of the goodwill of thousands of students. Every month the students of our school visit orphanages and old age homes with love, medicines, homemade food and a help­ing hand for our own siblings, parents and grandparents. Kitchen garden, Anti-drug campaign, palliative care and awareness programmes are some among the sincere efforts of our school. ‘Walk to goodness’- the motto of our Nallapadam inspires the people in the locality to do good as well. Govt. HSS, Kallada is successful in teaching children how to conquer the hearts of others through the words of love.

The Nallapadam Best school award has given in our hands more tools to toil for spreading the light of goodness. Today’s society is not devoid of scholars but it cer­tainly lacks humans with humanity. It is this dilemma that Nallapadam and Malayala Manorama tackles. Today, we vow that we will continue to love and care others not only in our schooldays but throughout our life.

Dear friends, it is easy to look at ourselves and be happy but it is difficult to look at others and make them happy. Schools must teach the students to open their minds for the needs of others rather than narrow down to their own lives and betterments. Let such an ideal good society come through Nalla­padam Thank you.

For:

  • Every game has its own rules and contest­ants are supposed to abide by the rules.
  • Rejecting the prize is equal to questioning the decision.
  • A winner in a competition should accept the prize, or else what is a competition for?
  • Disregarding the law means disrespecting and befooling the audience.

Against:

  • It’s a person choice to accept or reject a re­ward.
  • Receiving the prize isn’t everything. The competition is all about the attitude of people who compete.
  • Prize doesn’t prove anything. One day can be good for one of the contestants, but the other day might prove wrong.
  • Values are more important as they prove that friendship is a better prize than the prize they would get.

Answer 14.
Teaching Profession is better than the Medical Profession (by Meenu in favour of the motion)                      Respected teachers and dear friends, I stand before you to support that teaching profession is better than the medical profession. ‘You can be the candle that spreads its light and you can light up millions of tiny lamp as you pass through as a teacher Teaching has always been and continues to be a noble profession. Commercialisation has touched it but not seeped right through it.

The med­ical profession has been transformed today Doctors take the oath but a lap number seem to transform their conscience into a commercial money-spinning machine. Doctors, shop have mushroomed at every nook and corner in our cities. Teaching involves interactive sharing process which can trans­form the lives and outlook of an individual.

The destiny and character of many leading personalities have been shaped in the class­ values imbibed in the early impressionable years of life. If illiteracy is removed from our country a major problem for us will get solved. Even today an ordinary teacher has basic values and lives a simple life. Doctors, on the other hand, run after the luxuries of life. All in all, it can easily be said that teach­ing profession is better than the medical profession.

Answer 15.

Answer 16.
Chikungunya has claimed many lives in different parts of Kerala. Chief causes for the epidemic are uncontrolled dumping of garbage in public places and stagnant water where the mosquitoes breed.
